these sanctions down there. but yet obama didn't say that. he didn't say your is country's had a mixed record. he said america was a great force, in fact the world's greatest force against apartheid which i thought was generous in his reading of history. of course he became great friends with clinton and carter because of their record of being against apartheid. i saw will smith in one of those pictures and harry bellefonte. there were enough of us and the people that were activists to give our country a good name in that country. we were lucky to make the change in the '80s. thanks again to the late bill grey. they took the lead. >> no doubt about it. ron delums, randall robinson. but i think people don't understand there were elements in this country that actually as late as the mid-80s was still calling nelson mandela and the anc terrorists. >> i know. >> yet he came out with a very forgiving spirit and rose above all of that. >> i think there's a lot of great leaders in south africa. we've lost some of them, of course. there's a lot of people down there that i'd love to see g

and george w. bush and the obama administration have not joined, have not joined. they have isolated the united states on this issue. i ask what kind of message this sends to the rest of the world in this lack of leadership here we ought to just sign it. we spend hundreds of millions of dollars removing landmines around the world. we use the leahy war victims fund to help landmine victims around the world. what are we afraid of? we have another leahy law says we cannot export landmines? let's show the courage. it only takes a little bit to go for it and sign the treaty, like every one of our allies has done. is that so difficult? now, in conclusion let me tell you, on november 22, remember the great loss this country suffered 50 years ago when president kennedy was assassinated. i remember my wife and i, as a long -- a young law student stand right here on this corner watching them go down. hundreds of thousands industry. you could hear the drums when they left the white house. that far away. you could actually hear the click in the street lights as they changed, and you could hear t
